tuesday in sunnyvale after allegedly threatening to kill state senator leland yee who has offered gun control legislation in sacramento which basham opposed. the california highway patrol says basham was carrying a concealed weapon at the time of the arrest. then a search of his residence on humboldt avenue turned up a cache of explosives, some of which were detonated on scene, others were driven away in a special containment vessel. but the last four days, investigators have been searching his home which appears guarded by several professional grade surveillance cameras. inside the cluttered rooms, investigators are still looking for more evidence to build their case that the threats were real. >> when we found the destructive devices, more or less it was items that were complete in nature and more apt to be used without any additional work to be done on them. as the investigation wraps up in santa clara, we can tell you that the prosecutor in
6:06 pm
charge of this case, the deputy district attorney was seen walking into the property this afternoon. apparently wants to get a good feel for the layout of the house and all of the details that will be used in the case to prosecute this case at a later date. allen, as for mr. basham, he will be back in court next week to enter a plea and he will also be undergoing a bail hearing. right now he is held on a no bail subject and so next week when he comes back into court, the subject of bail will come up. >> certainly will. len ramirez, thank you. other bay area headlines. antioch police are investigating a traffic accident that killed a 14-year- old girl. she was struck by a car last night while crossing hillcrest avenue near hidden glen drive. tonight there is a memorial at the intersection. police say the driver of the car is cooperating in the investigation. they don't think speed or alcohol were factors. san leandro police are looking for a man who they say

6:09 pm
cabin where dorner made his last stand. caution tape and evidence markers only beginning to tell the story. this lower level room where forensics teams left their gloves behind is where dorner's body was found and the only thing still standing is the brick chimney. investigators fearful for the safety of firefighters let the home burn with dorner still inside. >> i feel bad for the families. tough. >> reporter: you're getting emotional. >> it's home. >> reporter: an emotional end to a terrifying tweak had residents from big bear to san diego on edge. but maybe it's the images here in here that sum it up best, ashes and angels that this is finally over. the owners of the property are trying to figure out how to begin to start cleaning it up. and a short distance down the road where the firearm was found, the san bernardino county sheriff's department has made another crime scene as

6:16 pm
here as long as it's effective and i don't, you know, no compromise. >> caltrans says law enforcement will be called when the construction begins. that should happen in less than two weeks. this won be warbler's first run -- this wouldn't be warbler's first run anyone with the law. she was arrested when santa cruz police clashed with an "occupy" encampment in 2011. if you were a tree-sitting, it's a nice night. but next week i don't think i would want to be a tree sitter. >> get monopoly ready for next week. we'll have significant changes. we are going to be in the 70s tomorrow. forget the 70s. santa cruz how about the 80s today? yes, 80 degrees. you get a strong north wind off the mountains and really warms you up, like the beach today. 80 degrees. gilroy and oakland 75.

napa 73. san francisco and downtown the first 70-degree day since november 9, 98 days ago. here's a look at why we got so warm. we are getting that north-to- northeast wind because the ridge of high pressure is now at its strongest point. it's shoving the storm track so far to the north, there are storms out there. there are always storms out there. the question is there something in the way blocking it? the answer is yes. sending all that moisture way up to the north riding over the ridge of high pressure you see it come back down through montana through colorado through wyoming. it's about 1,000 miles to our east. so until that high pressure moves, forecast isn't going to change. tomorrow highs around 70 again. sunday things do change because the high is moving. it will sag to our south and east. same ridge of high pressure same clockwise flow but now that will enhance an onshore flow so we'll be cooler on sunday, still sunny, cooler monday still dry and then on tuesday, the first of many fronts will move through giving us some rainfall. rain holds off until the end of the holiday weekend but temperatures have hit their

6:30 pm
11:20 a.m. >> the fly-by of this is an historic event. never before in human history have we been able to see an object come this close of this size. >> reporter: first spotted by spanish astronomers as a tiny blip against the background stars, we have since learned the asteroid is 45 meters wide, half the size of a football field, and when it passed over sumatra around 11:00 pacific time this morning it was only 17,200 miles high. whisker thin by astronomical standards. it's 5,000 miles closer than our gio synchronous satellites overhead. much closer and it would have hit like a similar asteroid a centuries ago in, where else, russia. >> an object the size of da14 actually impacted the earth on june 30, 1908, the so-called tunguska event. an object of 30 or 40 meters came down into the earth's atmosphere and exploded leveling trees for 820 square
6:31 pm
miles. >> reporter: most of these objects come from the asteroid belt a ring of debris well beyond the orbit of mars. >> the asteroid belt is really fascinating because it's kind of like the boneyard of material that's left over from farming all these plan -- forming all these planets. >> reporter: fascinating until someone gets hurt like more than 1,000 in russia this morning. that object was just too small to pick out in advance. the really big ones could wipe out humanity. >> nasa is currently studying about 9,000 of these near earth asteroids. about 1800 of them are fairly large and they are very particularly interesting to us. >> it's been a phenomenally successful program and no impact risk in the near future. >> reporter: we have sent a spacecraft to get a close look at an asteroid and now that one is getting a close-up look at us, scientists are seizing the moment.

stolen. in a story you'll only see on k-p-i-x 5: chances are you other someone you know has had a bicycle stolen. in a story you will only see on kpix 5, ken bastida went undercover to find out where many stolen bikes are surfacing
6:42 pm
and how victims are finding those bikes when the police can't. ken. >> reporter: yeah, allen. this person right here on the embarcadero in san francisco is smart. the bike is locked up, it's locked to a pole. they have the u lock on there probably not going to be a victim of bike theft. bikes are everywhere in san francisco right now. and according to the d.a., believe it or not, bike thefts are up about 70% in san francisco? >> you can see these things. they're ubiquitous, everywhere. we heard that bikes were turning up on craigslist, stolen bikes and also in a number of bay area flea markets. so we decided to take a look for ourselves. you guys know anything about this bike right here? it's a secret underground market. how about these bikes? >> there is not mine. >> reporter: dozens of bicycles appearing for sale every week at local flea markets. can i get your name real quick? >> no. >> reporter: apparently out of nowhere. do you know where the bikes come from? >> no. >> reporter: people who have had their bikes stolen have
6:43 pm
their suspicions like tim from san francisco. last year, someone stole his bike from outside his local grocery store. >> just said, wow, that was quick. surprising to lock in a secure bike rack on a well-lit area just all of a sudden gone. >> reporter: then there's michael koch also of san francisco. >> the bike was standing here and they were lock to this shelf which you cannot move. >> reporter: his two high-end specialized bikes disappeared in one fell swoop. >> the bikes and locks why gone. i would have never thought that bikes would be stolen out of the garage in a marina. it's become a huge problem. >> reporter: san francisco d.a. george gascon recently busted a major stolen bicycle ring recovering more than 100 stolen bikes. >> more than likely, this is a fencing operation. >> reporter: investigators believe that most of the bikes were being sold at flea markets in oakland. >> how are you doing, guys?
6:44 pm
>> reporter: ken bastida with channel 5. so we decided to pay a visit ourselves. i was going to ask you about these bikes. who sells the bikes? >> he is in the bathroom. >> reporter: sellers weren't eager to talk to us. you guys know anything about this bike right here. prices were low like this classic italian road bike in mint condition, retails for thousands but selling here for just $300. where do the bikes come from? >> i buy from here, sell them from here. >> reporter: you buy them from different vendors here and real sell them? >> yes, sir. >> reporter: that turned out to be what everyone said. where do you guys get the bike? >> the flea market. >> reporter: this man said he is selling bikes for many years with no problems. don't ask too many questions? >> yeah. >> reporter: everywhere we went crowds watched definitely not surprised even seemingly
6:45 pm
entertained. but for bike theft victims, it's no joke. michael's two stolen bikes were worth about $11,000. 6 months after the theft, he is still posting them on craigslist and other stolen bike websites every week hoping that someone will spot them. >> at this point, i'm kind of -- i would be pleasantly surprised. >> reporter: it's an online network that paid off for tim. >> someone replied and said hey i saw this bike. >> reporter: it was spotted at the laney flea market. believe it or not, he lucked out. working with police, he got his bike back. so speaking of the police, they tell us this is the way to do it. you get one of these u-locks, lock it to a meterrer a bike rack and you cable both wheels through the frame. and around the back tire. that's the best chance you got and even, you know, then there's no guarantee. but at least you give it a
6:46 pm
fighting chance. reporting live from the embarcadero in san francisco, i'm ken bastida, kpix 5. >> never found mine. >> i didn't either. >> double lock them i guess especially today because it was a beautiful day to be riding a bike. >> unfortunately thieves and folks who choose to do wrong know that. we have to all be smart and be smart out there. maybe you're heading to the water over the weekend. use the nog while you're out there. this weekend is going to be beautiful, saturday, sunday, monday rain-free but we need some rainfall and mother nature giving us good timing because right when we go back to work that's when the rain moves in. friday night heading out you head out in the mild evening, concord 63. oakland right now still 70. san francisco downtown 67. lower 60s for livermore. radar clear until the holiday weekend ends. but we'll see a change in temperature over the weekend. tahoe this weekend is down to 75% of normal, down 61% from the start of the year because
